Twins kind of make sense because it is a V8, but personally I would consider a single. Twins are expensive, tend to produce a lot of heat, require a lof of plumbing, and need to be mounted down and far away from the engine, which works, but a well positioned single might work well too if you could find room.
Fully built block with forged internals required for maximum power and reliability for sure. I hate to say it (as a tundra and turbo car owner and lover) because I would love to boost a 3URFE myself, but at that amount of money you may as well just "settle" for a supercharger or get a factory turbo diesel truck. Either one could likely outperform the turbo 3URFE more reliably (to a point) for way less money. Gotta keep the Tundra chassis? I'd rather swap a turbodiesel engine in. I get it - for proof of concept and it would be badass but WHP/TQ to Dollars is just makes more sense than everything it takes to build the block, turbocharge, fuel, and tune the 3URFE.
